Nominee Toolkit

So you got yourself nominated for the Best of 209?
Congratulations! Here’s everything you need to know:

Ways to get votes

  1. Ask for them: We’ve created “Vote for Us” ads that you can use on your website (below). Be sure to place one in a prominent position so your customers see it, and then link back to (or one of the category links below!) so they can easily access the ballot.
  2. Send reminders: Post regularly on your social media accounts, asking your followers to nominate your business and provide this link:
  3. Repeat: Send emails to your customer database. Recommended dates:
    • May 1: Best of 209 voting begins!
    • May 15: Friendly reminder
    • May 24: Last call – voting ends May 31!
  4. Speak up: Share with your customers all of the categories in which you’re nominated. Ask them to vote early and often! Download this PDF flyer to put by your register/reception area and make it a priority to ask your customers to vote for you! Some nominees even ask customers to vote within the text of their receipts! Every little reminder helps.
  5. Let us help: Download our free social media graphics. They are pre-formatted and labeled for the appropriate platform. We also offer several advertising opportunities to get your name and brand front and center on the ballot!
